Ted Lieu Trolls Trump With a Warning Sign Outside His Office and a Helpful Chart

Congressman Ted Lieu of California is known for trolling President Donald Trump on Twitter, antics that often get under the skin of his opponents, and creative ways to get his point across.

In June of 2018, on the floor of the House of Representatives, he played the sounds of crying children at a migrant detention center. He was told to cut it out and later tweeted “F**k decorum.” And there was the time when he was in a hearing with right-wing activist Candace Owens and played audio of her remarks about Adolf Hitler, infuriating Owens.

Lieu’s latest bit of trolling was done at the expense of the president. The Democrat hung a warning sign outside his office reading, “If you are a foreign power and you try something shade, we will report you to the FBI.”

The note is a jab at Trump’s remarks in a recent ABC interview in which he said that he might accept help from a foreign power in an election. The president said, “It’s not an interference, they have information – I think I’d take it.”

Lieu later sent out another tweet trashing Trump. The lawmaker wrote, “You recently stated that you’d have no problem accepting dirt on a political opponent from a foreign power. Here’s a friendly reminder of what U.S. elected officials can and cannot accept. We’ve been told you prefer one-page memos with pictures. Hope this is helpful.”

The list of things Lieu wrote that Trump could accept includes “discussions” and “cookies.” On the list of things he wrote that Trump cannot accept, were “campaign donations, army of hackers, opposition research.”

During his ABC interview, Trump tried to flatten the moral plane, comparing opposition research to election interference. The president said “You go and talk honestly to congressmen, they all do it. They always have. And that’s the way it is. It’s called ‘oppo research.'”

Ted Lieu is terrific. Trumpy and his crazed cultists drooling over his insults, lies and paying zero taxes for himself, family and billionaire corporations is also a threat to our national security. Accepting foreign money is treason. Start impeachment proceedings NOW!

Mr. Lieu show such intentional disrespect for the office of the president, and many others, I can’t take anything he says seriously. Grow up Mr. Lieu and stop playing childish baiting games, you’re not in middle school anymore. You are being paid well to GET SOMETHING DONE. That would earn my respect.

What a feeble troll. No foreign power would bother with emo bro Ted Lieu.

Recall that this pathetic wannabe actually disrupted a moment in remembrance of the victim’s of the Texas mass-murder, ’cause his feelings. Talk about selfishly-indulgent and with no sense of decorum. I’m looking at you people who fling accusations at the president.

Ted’s an attention whore. His feelings take precedence.
